The growing number of music teachers who are gaining knowledge and skills in the use of technology during music lessons is generating a huge increase in the number of teachers who are interested in teaching music lessons online. I am one of the teachers who teaches weekly online lessons via Skype, and I absolutely love working with my students via this platform. I enjoy teaching online students so much that I want to grow my online studio, and this is where MusicMonde: The Worldwide Music School enters the picture.
MusicMonde: The Worldwide Music School is a new company that was started in 2014 by John Foreman and brought to us via website and app by Easy Ear Training (read more here and here). The primary goal of MusicMonde is to facilitate the connection of potential online music students with online music teachers via MusicMonde's app and website. The website contains a library of articles about online music lessons in organ, guitar, piano, and singing, as well as a directory of teachers who teach a variety of music lessons online.
To put it simply, teachers who teach online lessons sign up to be listed on the website and app so that students who are seeking online music lessons can view the list of available teachers, choose the one that fits them best, and make contact with the potential teacher through the website or app so that an interview can take place and lessons can begin. More and more teachers are signing up to be part of the MusicMonde School, and signing up is a very simple process.

One of my favorite things about MusicMonde is that the goal is to facilitate connection between a student and teacher, but everything else is up to the teacher (scheduling, payments, policies, etc.). I really like the fact that I can include an online student in my studio by having them follow my current policies and tuition structure, just as my in-person students do. Most online lessons websites do not follow this model, so I truly do like that about MusicMonde. This helps during a day of lessons when switching back and forth from in-person to online lessons. The switching back and forth becomes a seamless transition, and I don't have to remember separate policies, payment structures, schedules, etc., because all of my students are following the same procedures.
Take a look at the MusicMonde website to discover all that it has to offer, and be sure you read the articles in the library and check out the teacher profiles. It's a great time to be an online music teacher!
